Kawaii Mason Jar Organizer DIY!

How to make super cute mason jar organizers!

Hello and welcome back! It’s been quite awhile since my last DIY post!

So today, I am going to show you how to make these:

What you will need is this:

*Make sure to choose jars with raised writing on only one side*

First step is to remove the lid of the jar and wipe your jars down with a damp rag. Let them dry completely.

Now using your acrylic paint, paint the outside of the jars with your chosen colors. You will need to do multiple coats to make sure you have a solid color all the way around. You also need to paint the lip of the jar as that may be noticeable once the lid is back on.

Once your jars have fully dries, look up kawaii faces online. A quick Google image search will more than suffice. Choose what faces you like and using a pencil, lightly sketch your chosen face onto the jar on the flat side of the jar with no raised lettering.

When you have the faces sketched, carefully paint your faces on using your sketch as a guide.

After they dry completely use a brush and paint modge podge all over the jar to set your design and seal the paint.

Now all you need to do is put the metal lid ring back on, (I don’t know the techincal term) after it dries completely, without the top and now you’re  ready to put your items in them and display your jars. I put pens, paintbrushes, pencils and scissors in mine:

If you love these and don’t want to make your own you can purchase them in my Etsy shop NerdCentral13. I can do all sorts of colors and faces so you can mix and match.

I hope you all enjoyed this DIY post! If you happen to make it show me pictures! Use #collinswoah13 or #collinswoahscorner so I am sure to see them!

Craftin’ Time!

See what crafts I’ve been working on lately!

Hello new and old friends!

So what in the heck have I been working on lately?

Great question. Well this is what I’ve been working on lately:

I know these just look like painted pots in various sizes but these little cuties are going to be Pokemon pots. In the next month or so I will be launching an Etsy shop where you’ll be able to score these soon-to-be completed beauties. I will give more details once the Etsy shop is live!

I also have been working on this:

This is something I was able to make from a heart shaped chocolate box from Valentine’s Day. My boyfriend, Mathew, got me this box and I wanted a way to keep it as a memento from our first Valentine’s Day together but I didn’t want it just be a chocolate box that made me sad every time I realized there was no chocolate in it. I know you all can relate to that. So I came up with this. We’re cute and oh so mushy and gushy and say this to each other all the time. Naturally I thought it was perfect and cute to put on this and be extra dorky and sappy. I love it and so does Mathew so that’s all that really matters here 😛

The last craft I have been kind of working on, or meaning to start, is this:

So these will be cute little kawaii storage jars for things like my paint brushes, pencils, etc. I plan on painting them the solid pastel colors you see on top of the jars and then adding kawaii faces to them. Which will make them just too cute to handle.

So what have you been working on? What do you think of these? What should I do next?

Stay classy and sassy ❤

The Last DIY of the Week!

Vday gift idea to make for your friend or significant other with a nerdy twist.

Okay guys, hello and welcome back!

As the title says, this is my last DIY of the week. So sad, I know. 😦 BUT the fun is not over yet! Today I will be going over how to make a cute little Paopu fruit plush to share with someone you want to be in your life forever ❤ (It can be romantically or not, just remember that!)

So here is what you will need:

img_0370

To get started you will need to cut out your Paopu fruit from the coloring page you printed out. This will be your pattern for your plushie. Once it is cut out, trace around it on your pieces of felt and then cut those out.

When you have your two yellow starts cut out you will pin them together around the edges. Next you will either be sewing the entire thing with a sewing machine or by hand. I personally used a sewing machine. (I’m also sure you could use fabric glue too but I personally have never done that) If you are hand sewing (you go, girl! Or boy!) you will be using a whip stitch (search YouTube for tutorials on how to do a proper whip stitch). You will sew almost around the entire start but leaving one of the edges of the star unsewn. With your unsewn side you will be using that to pull your star inside out.

With your star inside out, it’s actually the right side out. Use either a pen or a pencil to help push your points all the way out. Once it’s fully reversed, you will be using stuffing to stuff your star. This is your choice on how fluffy or not fluffy you want your plushie. When you get your desired fluffiness you will need to hand sew your open edge closed. Again, using a whip stitch.

Once your beautiful star is all sewn up you will need to attach the leaves! Using any kind of fabric glue, choose how you want them to be arranged and on which edge and glue them all. Leave the star upright while it dries completely and then you’re all done!

This is how mine turned out once completely done:

Doin’ More DIYs With Collinswoah13

Another fun and nerdy V-day gift DIY!

Hello and welcome back to CollinswoahsCorner my beautiful internet friends!

Like I told you all in my last blog this week will be filled with DIYs! All handmade gift ideas that you can make for your friends or significant others for Valentines Day! Yay!

Today I will be showing you how to make a cute Pokemon painted pot to make your greenery a little nerdier. So this is what you will need:img_0375

So to get started you need to decide what Pokemon you will be painting. Just like my last DIY post, I chose Bulbasaur just because my man love him so so so much! I recommend finding a good picture of your Pokemon on Google images or something to have a good reference. Once you have that, its time to get started!

First paint your pot the color of your chosen Pokemon’s skin and let it dry. Next you will need to use a pencil and sketch on your Pokemon’s features like so:

027

Once your Pokemon’s features are sketched on, it’s time to outline and paint them in. Make sure you let each color fully dry before applying the next. Make sure to also apply the appropriate number of coats to the pot so you get the crisp and bright colors. Once finished with all your painting let your pot fully dry. The next step is to take a brush and paint on your Modge Podge all over the pot, giving it a nice and even coat. This will dry clear and seal your pot, as well as make it appear shiny.

Now that your pot is painted and properly sealed you can decide to plant an actual plant or succulent in your pot. I personally don’t have the time to keep a plant alive (or the sunlight) and this is also a gift. I don’t want to set the expectation with my boyfriend that he MUST keep this plant alive or else. Now that’s just not nice or fun. So I opted to use to foam pot filler, a fake succulent and moss to make my pot look full and pretty. And this is what my finished product looks like:
